The Cabinet Card Gallery is fortunate to have many historical fashion experts  among its visitors. Hopefully, one or more of them will leave comments that offer an explanation about the history behind the hats seen in this cabinet card. The two women featured in this image are wearing shawls and massive hats. Are these hats part of a uniform or costume of some sort of order or organization? Are these hats on steroids? There is no identifying information concerning the subjects or the photographer written on either side of the cabinet card.
